I practice psychodynamic therapy, which means that I am curious about the deeper meaning of your difficulties and where they might have originated.
Patients often tell me how they feel fed up, hopeless, lost, and exhausted by the time they seek out a therapist. Many folks in my practice are queer, Asian American adult children of immigrants who experience painful conflicts within their family of origin that lead to separation, emotional distance, or even estrangement. I also work with individuals and couples who feel stuck in frustrating repetitive patterns in their thoughts and behaviors, negatively impacting their ability to find enjoyment in their lives and in their relationships. Therapy can give you a space to speak freely and listen to yourself in new and different ways.

I choose a psychodynamic therapy model that best fits the presenting problems and goals of each person, couple or family.
I help people to better understand themselves, their psychological distress and their relationships. I focus on helping each person discover what they need to relieve suffering, to develop helpful coping skills and to improve relationships. When a person heals psychological wounds, learns helpful coping skills and makes desired personal and relationship changes, they experience not just relief but a greater feeling of wholeness . I work in a collaborative fashion and believe that empathy and understanding are key elements in my helping each person .

I use a combination of mindfulness, positive psychology, psychodynamic , and cognitive behavior therapy to decisively and compassionately direct you toward your goals.
Please email for the fastest response. I have been working with parents in the Sacramento area since graduating from UC Davis with a major in psychology and a minor in human development in 1999. I have since partnered with not only parents, but numerous couples, students, and individuals to decrease anxiety, depression, self-doubt, and relational conflict while advancing toward a life of increased self-esteem, joy, sense of purpose, clarity, connectedness, and life satisfaction.

My work is informed by transpersonal and psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness, and Internal Family Systems.
I approach psychotherapy from a spiritual perspective and I believe therapy, along with other practices, can help us awaken to a life of meaning. In therapy I will help you identify the source of your longing to be whole, and together, we will move closer to that source, so you become re-sourced. Together we will explore your innate natural cycles and help you align to your own inner rhythm, so that you might meet depletion with rest and energy with creativity.

My approach includes theories that look to the past, present and future as I guide from psychodynamic , cognitive behavioral therapy, and solution-oriented approaches that help find your inner strengths and resilience.
Therapy doesn’t have to be a dreaded experience. With a kind heart and open mind, I strive to make therapy a comfortable place where you can explore the deepest insights about yourself with compassion and empathy. Therapy becomes an experience and journey about who YOU are and where YOU want to go. Is something standing in the way? Are you stuck in repetitive patterns or plagued by underlying issues? Whether you are suffering unbearable panic attacks, struggling with depression, or having difficulty with transitions, I'm here to help. Let's go beyond the surface and help YOU learn about YOU.

I utilize Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Narrative, and a Psychodynamic approach to work with teens and adults experiencing low self-esteem, grief, anxiety, depression, codependency, major life transitions, self-harm, and leadership and spirituality issues.
It can be difficult and uncomfortable to talk to someone we barely know about our thoughts and feelings, especially if they are upsetting to us. At some point in our lives, we will need someone to walk with us for awhile. Therapy is about me walking with you. I consider this a privilege and love helping people see how valuable they are, no matter what they have gone through.

Do you struggle with feelings of anxiety, depression, guilt or low self-esteem? Do you find yourself avoiding social engagements or so preoccupied with excessive worrying? Finding ways to navigate these difficult feelings can help you get back on track. I use a psychodynamic approach and CBT that focuses on uncovering patterns of behavior and ways of relating to ourselves and others that are often outside of our awareness. I also consider how our past impacts who we are today. Through acceptance and empathy, we will establish a trusting therapeutic relationship and work together toward your personal growth and self-discovery.

I utilize psychodynamic therapy because it is important to address the root causes of your problems rather than just focusing on specific situations to prevent similar problems from re-surfacing later.
Do you want a positive change in your life, one that you would be content and at peace with? Do you constantly worry about almost everything every day? Do you have a job that is so stressful that you are having trouble sleeping and eating? Do any of the questions listed above impact your relationships with your family, significant other, and/or friends? These are all the common issues I deal with in my practice. I also see clients with past abuse/trauma, domestic violence, and anger control problems. I welcome anyone from all cultural backgrounds to utilize my services.
